LAPO Commemorates World Cancer Day, Screens Community Members

 

Lift Above Poverty Organization (LAPO) joined the international community to create mass awareness on cancer across the country in commemoration of this year’s World Cancer Day.
The exercise which featured rallies, distribution of Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials, free cancer screening, and tests for 1,918 persons, received a commendation from community members nationwide.

Executive Director, LAPO, Dr Honestus Obadiora, said that the organization was committed to the empowerment of poor and vulnerable people in Nigeria through the implementation of innovative financial and non-financial development programmes.

He said the awareness which centred on cervical, breast and prostate cancers was part of activities to mark the 2021 World Cancer Day and called on the federal and state governments to provide cancer treatment support for indigent individuals due to the high cost of management and treatment.

The theme of this year’s World Cancer Day is “I am and I will”.
